Ahoy takes a look at the history in real life and video games:

“What does a battle rifle have in common with a microwave?  They both go ping when they’re done” <– har har harrrr

Either he’s pronouncing the names of all these guys (designers) wrong…. or I have been for years.

m1-garand-thumbNo mention of M1-thumb? Weaaaaaak ;)  Maybe he figures everyone know how to avoid it?

Thoughts?

How to avoid getting M1 thumb:

I hear a lot of people talk about putting clips in their Glocks too.  I haven’t figured out how to do that yet, but I wonder if there is such thing as “Glock thumb”?

Thoughts?  Any of you guys ever had M1 thumb?

Remember this gun from the movie:


The Marines of the USCMC (United States Colonial Marine Corps) famously use the M41A Pulse Rifle as their standard issue weapon, a futuristic assault rifle with a magazine capacity of 95 rounds of armor piercing ammunition with a pump action 30mm grenade launcher underneath the barrel. This weapon was made from a M1 Thompson submachine gun with a Remington 870 shotgun underneath with the shroud and foregrip of a SPAS 12 covering it.

The video below doesn’t show a real pulse rifle… but it is the next best thing.

Composed of a SWD M-11/9 submachine gun and a Remington 870 short barreled shotgun, it holds 50 9mm rounds via a Sumoi “Coffin” magazine and three 12 gauge, 2-3/4″ shells. That’s two in the magazine and one in the chamber. The MAX-41A also includes a red dot sight and digital shot counter, both of which power on with insertion of the magazine, as well as a collapsible stock.

Looks like it will eventually be for sale.  More info and lots more pictures – HERE

Pretty awesome that the shot counter works too!  Definitely a neat franken-gun.
